Workout Wednesday: Lucky Spin Mix #13

It’s been a few months since I posted a new spin workout. I was actually inspired create spin mix #13 (woo! Lucky 13!) because of the class I went to this morning. I love the woman who teaches the class and she is an incredible — INCREDIBLE — athlete (I’m planning on working with her post-baby to get back into racing shape – she is the tri-coach and organizes a running group), BUT her playlist sucks, I wanted to die from boredom, and I just kept thinking about what music I would be playing instead.

Truthfully, I hate playlists where all of the music has the same beat and is the same style. Have you noticed?? Having a break in songs and song style is what makes spin class so motivating to me (because face it – riding on a spin bike/trainer is a bit like going nowhere on a treadmill!). Some people love the continuous, never-ending songs — but not me. I need variety! So here’s the lastest…

The playlist:

SpinMix13

Whenever I create a playlist, I think, “Could this BE more random?” I think I always outdo myself!

*Thanks to my friend Kari who recommend the Icona Pop song to me — I love it!*

The workout:

Now go forth and get sweaty.

Do you have fitness instructors that you love and hate? What makes the difference for you? For me it’s a) music,  b) energy/tone, c) the actual workout. I want people to PUSH and challenge me. I don’t go to the gym to look cute. 

Are you looking for MORE spin workouts (or just more workouts in general)? You can find them all here on my Workouts page!

    I love this playlist!!! You have one of my favorite songs on there…Under Pressure! Whenever I hear that song, I get pumped. Currently, my coach is teaching a spinning class every Tuesday morning at Salt Lake Running Co and I go and he is an AWESOME teacher. He will sometimes compile a playlist and sometimes his wife, who also comes to the class, will put together a playlist for the class. So far, I haven’t heard a playlist I don’t like. But man, he pushes you hard. It’s great!

    I’m saving this mix. I anticipate lots of spin classes in 2013, so I’ll be adding this mix to my list. :)

    I used to take an instructor that was so fit (which is SO motivating), played awesome music and chose her words wisely. She didn’t spend the whole class talking, which I liked, but when she did talk she said things that were truly inspiring. I miss her class so much. I’ve also taken spin classes with people who are ca-razy and I leave with a headache. ha
